Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by J.Goldman (United States), Aug 31, 2005 at 08:24

New readers to the website may not have a clear concept of the definition of "Islamist" and might mistakenly think that the article is based on hostility to believers in a peaceful form of Islam.

Most democratic legal systems make a distinction between belief and practice. It would, therefore, be fair to require applicants for permanent residence and citizenship to agree to adhere to the practice of monogamy.

People with a violent agenda, of course, should not be candidates for immigration.
